The Game was ordered yesterday (Sept. 4) to stand trial on three felony charges after he allegedly pulled a gun during a pickup basketball game at an educational center in South Los Angeles.

The rapper, whose real name is Jayceon Terrell Taylor, faces counts of making criminal threats, possession of a firearm in a school zone and exhibiting a firearm on the grounds of a facility for minors. A Superior Court commissioner ordered him arraigned on Sept. 25.

The charges stem from an alleged Feb. 24 fight during a basketball game at the learning complex. Police say Taylor, 27, grabbed a gun from his red Cadillac Escalade after punching a player on the opposing team and threatened to shoot him.

Taylor remains free on $50,000 bail. If convicted, he could face more than five years in prison.
